Charles Stanley Direct to increase platform charge


Just received an email from Charles Stanley that their platform charge will be increasing from 0.25% to 0.35% as of 10th September 2018. Stocks and shares trading still at £11.95 per trade. Curious to hear people’s thoughts on this!

More info here:


Always feel users should be grandfathered in, rather than getting fee rises but a 0.10% fee rise seems very specific and contained.


Come on Freetrade, get those Charles Stanley customers over to our platform - show them what a 0% platform fee service looks like.
